Some of what Gean Moreno and Ernesto Oroza are trying to get at in their collaborative works are a little hard to comprehend, but usually they are interesting and intellectually challenging contemporary explorations. This should hold true for “Drywood,” opening up at Wynwood’s Alejandra von Hartz Gallery on Thursday. Like some of their other collaborations in the past, […]

Hialeah is a state of mind as much as a physical place. A badge of honor to some, it also has been ridiculed as a wasteland. What’s great about the city (it’s the fifth largest in Florida) is that it has a bit of everything – it’s quirky and kitchy, a working class town with […]

 It’s not always easy to comprehend what some of contemporary art is saying, especially without some explanation. Sometimes that’s the point, as repeating simple representational imagery is what many wanted to get away from in the contemporary era.
